Lola T-333 Can Am car 1978'ish references

Postby Flemming » Thu Aug 20, 2020 4:22 am

Hi

I have recently unearthed a probably rare Formula Canada resin kit in 1:24 of the Alan Jones car. You know the red/white/blue First National sponsored car of the later Can-Am series based mostly on fendered F5000 cars. Actually the subject of a Tamiya RC car none the less and a rather nice looking car.

The kit is not complete though, but it fascinates me, so I might do an effort to make it? The entire rear end of the kit with gearbox, uprights and rear wing hold is missing. But should be doable.

Problem is that I can't find references that shows it? I can find loads of pics of the car taken from the sides and front. But nothing with the rear lid off or something like that. Yes it is a F5000 off the shelf lola, so the rear end won't be too different. But which other parts are at the end at what does the wing supports looks like?

Any hints, pictures or maybe even a scanned copy of the Formula Canada instruction manual for the kit out there? I am interested!

Best regards

Flemming

Hi

Thanks for the input. The kit is... rough... to say the least. So it will require a lot of work.
